Conheça a Equipe Algrano

Um time movido por uma missão: equilibrar a dinâmica de poder na cadeia de valor do café.

Levando a indústria para a frente

Toda ideia de negócio começa com um problema a ser resolvido. Em nosso caso, o problema surgiu durante uma viagem por fazendas de café no Brasil. Os cafeicultores não sabiam quem bebia seu café. Os grãos colhidos ficavam no país ou iam para a Alemanha? O café bebia bem ou mal? Os consumidores gostavam ou não? 

Quando a Algrano nasceu em 2015, partimos em uma missão: democratizar a cadeia global de fornecimento de café, conectando cafeicultores diretamente a torradores na internet. Embora a missão seja grande, o início foi humilde. Nosso primeiro embarque em dezembro de 2015 foi de meio contêiner. Saiu da Nicarágua com quatro pedidos de café rumo à Suíça e Alemanha. 

Desde então, a Algrano embarcou centenas de contêineres de café (cheios!) de centenas de produtores na América Latina, África e Ásia para centenas de torradores na Europa. Nosso trabalho é principalmente nos bastidores: asseguramos a qualidade quando o café viaja, oferecemos financiamento para torradores e cuidamos de toda a logística. Exportação, embarque, importação, armazenamento e transporte rodoviário... É tudo por nossa conta. 

Durante o transporte desses contêineres, descobrimos o quanto planilhas de Excel e telefonemas ainda fazem parte do comércio de café. É por isso que, em paralelo, desenvolvemos a plataforma online que está trazendo a indústria do café para o século 21. 

Junte-se a nós. Vamos para a frente com café, levando a indústria com a gente. E esse é apenas o começo...
